Mrs. de Mestre from Pinehurst NC is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need a subscription to Scholastic's Storyworks Magazines to have access to a variety of high-interest fiction and nonfiction texts which will nurture their love of reading.
Our fifth graders are leaders and readers! The range of student abilities varies greatly but all share an enthusiasm for learning and are exceptional at working together. We thrive in a military community; over 50% of our school population is a member of a military family. Our students have a special bond that creates a collaborative learning community, thus they use language as a tool to construct meaning by discussing their ideas and supporting the learning progress of everyone. My students are naturally inquisitive and their diversity generates a rich learning environment. Every student shares a unique perspective molded by his or her experiences.
Although the needs of students differ dramatically, all of them understand the importance of high expectations, and are committed to improving.
Despite the daily obstacles that our children face, they are incredibly resilient and hungry for knowledge. We embrace challenges. Our kids are driven to improve themselves and our world.
Storyworks magazines are rich with high-interests texts and are accessible to a wide range of readers! Students will become well-versed in varying genres by experiencing a combination of prose, poetry, drama and nonfiction in each edition. The texts also provide an opportunity for interdisciplinary links to our science and social studies content.
Students will formulate authentic real-world connections through their analysis of relevant paired texts .
Students will have access to digital resources and support; these multimedia features enhance each article and provide a platform for further student inquiry. We will utilize the magazines in various groupings (guided reading, shared reading, independent reading, etc) to maximize the impact.
